* According to William Wray, a combo of Creator/JohnKricfalusi getting fired from ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'', letting the shows success get to his head ''and'' losing his longtime girlfriend during its production were all factors in his career gradually spiraling downhill from then on.
-->"As far as I know what seemed to trigger the real acting out was the loss of his long time girlfriend, the rise of his power/fame and then the loss of Ren And Stimpy. This trifecta of emotional highs and lows seemed to open him up to a kind of total recklessness and plunged him into a bitter take no prisoners martyrdom. Spumco truly became the John K. House of worship, free of voices of reason. I do think he was brilliant and original visionary who was smart enough to know he needed a unique as him crew of artists and writers to make R and S great, but after he cracked, he forgot he had a great team, great timing in a low ebb in the Animation world, a great new network that believed in him and gave him the world and the love of millions of fans."

** [[WordOfGod According to]] co-creator Trey Parker, the episode "Raisins" (in which Stan's girlfriend Wendy breaks up with him) was based on the trials and tribulations he went through when he found his fiancée in bed with another man. Stan's thoughts in the episode reflect Parker's.

** This trope appears to be the theme and driving force of the episode "You're Getting Old". Parker and Stone, however, [[{{Jossed}} have stated that fans "took the episode too seriously" and deny being unhappy with the show]].
** The "Simpsons did it" episode has a very exasperated tone in response to a charge Parker and Stone had clearly gotten sick to death of.

* At a convention, Meghan [=McCarthy=] said of writing ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' that the reason that one of the main characters [[SanitySlippage goes crazy]] in many of the episodes she's written is because they were mostly composed in the wee hours of the morning under a tight deadline, reflecting her stress.

* Occurs in-universe in the RenAndStimpy episode ''Reverend Jack''. Meat salesman and meat-puppeteer (as well as [[TakeThat John Kricfalusi surrogate]]) Reverend Jack Cheese has a psychotic break and stops producing shows, eventually forcing the title characters to carry on the business without him (and leading to him becoming their new harshest critic).

** Fittingly, one of his last shorts, ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Shhhhhh}}]]'', which deals with a man who suffers a nervous breakdown due to stress, seems to capture the ordeal he was going through.

* In-universe example in the ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarePants'' episode "Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy VI: The Motion Picture". The titular film suffers a comically-exaggerated TroubledProduction, culminating in Patrick having filmed the whole thing [[WhatAnIdiot with the lens cap still on the camera]]. Spongebob suffers a massive FreakOut, and it's only thanks to a RousingSpeech[=/=]RamblingOldManMonologue from Mermaid Man that the film actually gets finished.
